Preston’s Flag Market will become a kitchen for the homeless in August.Advertisement
As Ramadan continues a group of Muslim volunteers are going to be handing out food.
Last year over 40 people were fed by the volunteers as the soup is binned off for an Asian cuisine of rice, naan, curri and home-baked sweet treats.
Organiser Hussain Master said: “Ramadan is a time when Muslims can experience what it feels like to be literally starving and it’s this empathy that has led us to come together as a community to share our food with those who are less fortunate.
“Last year’s event was a huge success and we already have a large number of volunteers who are ready and signed up to help out on the day.”
A video of last year’s BBC North West report can be watched on YouTube.
The feed the homeless event will be run from 7pm on Saturday 3 August.
Any leftover food is given to homeless shelters or those on their way to a night out in the city centre.
